Bagel needs to be in a home with a backyard, no apartments or condos!
Rescue Story: Bagel was rescued as a stray by several rescuers in the community when an alert went out via social media. After searching high and low for his potential owners as well as doing time at the shelter, they could not be found. He currently resides in a loving foster home where he awaits his forever family.
Personality: Bagel is all personality - and vocal….very vocal. He loves to talk, it’s a beagle thing. He enjoys soaking up the attention and interaction from humans and has the most endearing way of letting them know he loves to be loved and played with. He’s very animated when you squat down to pet him, he will curl up and push himself closer and closer to you until he’s on your lap - and then start talking and play growling with your hands or a toy. The talking is hilarious and people get quite a kick out of it. His foster dad says he loves to watch tv with him on the couch and will actually sit like a human on his little tush with his one leg in the air and his chest touching his. He will put his head on his foster dad’s cheek almost as if he’s giving him a little snuggly hug - he’s very affectionate! However, our little Bagel is the opposite of a couch potato. Bagel needs stimulation and action in his life and being a tripod does not hold him back one bit - he’s an active, young beagle. He’s never known life with all 4 legs so to him it’s normal to only have 3 and he’s physically just as rambunctious and active as any young 4 legged beagle! He needs daily walks doing what he loves best - to sniff! His sole purpose on a walk is to take in all the smells from every tree and every bush. He will trot, sniff, then trot, sniff some more. His entire walk is sniffing and he needs his daily walks to be happy. Icing on the cake for this guy is when his foster dad is in the mood for a run so Bagel can get to more smells faster! He would be ecstatic to have a human to run with. His foster dad will give him a retractable leash at walk time just to give him that freedom to trot and smell as much as possible. At his foster dad’s house, he enjoys playing with his doggy friends in the backyard. When it’s time to come in, this little stinker will try to get his foster dad to play a game of “catch me if you can” and will start to do sprints and donuts around the yard. His favorite thing to do is bring you any toy he can find and plop it in your lap to get you to engage in a game of fetch or tug of war. He’s also an avid sunbather during the day. Bagel loves to play with the other dogs in the house and loves to get them to chase him all around the yard, he will dart and turn and fake them all out - he’s usually faster than all of them so the game lasts quite a long time. At night, Bagel enjoys a good place to burrough and will bury himself under a big pile of blankets to sleep the night away. He also rides very well in the car and is overall a wonderful little guy who will bring a ton of happiness into your home.
Medical: Bagel is healthy, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
Would do best: We think Bagel would do best in a household that has the same energy level as his. If you like to go on lots of walks and are willing to make Bagel part of your busy lifestyle, he’s your guy. If you are a runner, even better because he would be happiest with a jogging partner! He loves to be part of the action, wherever that is. He likes parks, walks, runs, running errands, playing with dog friends, and just being with you to enjoy whatever life brings each day. Another doggy sibling in his life is really the ideal situation due to his sociable, playful nature.
Cats, Dogs, Kids: Bagel is excellent with all dogs, of all sizes, as mentioned previously. He is great with cats and does not give them a bother. He is sweet and gentle with children but we do prefer 5+.
